Services

Residential

We specialize in both large and small residential projects from the ground up from 100 square feet to 10,000 square feet. We have a great working relationship with some of the top architects and general contractors in the Monterey Bay area. These professionals look to us for common sense solutions to the most complex electrical construction issues. We can offer cutting edge solutions for your most complex lighting jobs. The electrical industry is exploding with new lighting technologies such as LED lighting and even dimmable fluorescent lighting. We can help you choose the system that will work best for your needs and budget. We have experience with wiring solid log homes, foam/concrete homes and conventional stick frame homes. Whether your project is large or small, you will be satisfied with the services that we can provide.

Additions & Remodels

Another area of expertise is our extensive experience with remodels. Many of the homes in the Santa Cruz area have first generation "knob & tube" wiring. This old style of wiring raises many issues concerning the ability to get your home properly insured and insulated. In many cases these old electrical systems are not grounded. Should you need some assistance with these old systems, please give us a call for a free consultation and estimate.

Meter Panel Change Outs

Another challenge that we face in our area is one of extreme corrosion of the metallic meter panels due to the salt air. We have literally changed out and upgraded hundreds of meter panels over the years. We make sure that your new panel is properly grounded according to the latest codes. Ask us about stainless steel panel enclosures! We can also procure the electrical permits and coordinate your job with both PG&E and the local inspection agency, offering you a trouble free "turn key" job.

Commercial

Through the years we have wired some of the most visible and prominent commercial projects in the Santa Cruz area. The following is a list of just a few of the projects we have successfully completed:

Safety Inspections

One valuable service that we have provided over the years is electrical inspections of both residential and commercial properties. We consult with owners in response to a "home inspection report" to verify the findings in the report as well as items that may have been missed. We then offer a free itemized estimate to make the repairs. This service has become invaluable to many real estate agents that we work with in Santa Cruz.

Stand By Power/Generators

The Santa Cruz area is a mountainous area with much of its electrical network serviced by overhead PG&E lines. During our stormy season, downed power lines are very common and therefore prolonged loss of power is unavoidable. We can help with the installation of a quality dependable Generac generator. These units are designed to operate on either propane or natural gas and can be wired with either automatic or manual transfer switches. We prefer to set up your stand by generator system to run your whole house rather than just a few circuits. We will consult with you to make sure that your generator is sized properly and we even coordinate the installation of the gas plumbing.

California Title 24 Lighting Compliance

Whether your project is residential or commercial we can help with making sure it complies with the latest Title 24 regulations. We work with several energy consultants to procure all of the necessary Certificates of Compliance documents necessary for your project.

Design/Build

We have the ability to generate electrical blueprint drawings including one line power diagrams and panel schedules. We can also supply you with California Title 24 lighting compliance documents.

Spas/BBQ's/Landscape Lighting

Through the years, we have been involved in many interesting exterior projects. Those projects include the following work:

Voice/Data/TV Systems

We can take care of your voice, data, internet, video and sound needs. We work closely with a very experienced team of professionals that can solve your most complex needs.
